"What is your 'kid walked in during sex' story?" –– This was from Redditor GertieGuss, who's asking the real questions.

Hey, look: It happens. Kids walk in. This is assuming you actually have kids and that kids don't just randomly walk in off the street. Privacy is of the utmost concern––and it gets harder to find once children become a factor––so let's do the right thing and laugh.

Kids, we apologize in advance if the sight of your parents bumping uglies shaved several years off your overall lifespan. You'll be pleased to hear that some people who are not parents decided to weigh in, too.

"I was the kid..."

I was the kid, I was in high school so not super young, I needed something from my parent's bathroom, I had no idea they were in their room having sex, I thought they were downstairs watching TV. Walked in to the scene of my naked mother on top of my naked father. I said, "yikes" and hightailed it out of the room. My mother came into my room a bit later and asked if I was okay, I said, "I will be if we never speak of this again."


"I do as I'm told."

My wife's mom is over - she decides to be nice to me, so sends her to the park with our daughter, then my wife orders me up to the bedroom and to strip and wait for her in the bed.

I do as I'm told.

Wife puts on some nice little sexy robe thing (thankfully nothing too kinky, more cute).

Proceeds to climb into the bed, and at this point just tells me to lay back and relax.

Just in the knick of time we hear footsteps running up the stairs. So she pulls back, throws a blanket over me and then curls up beside me like she's hugging me, then throws her leg up over "me" to hide my happiness.

Door opens and it's our daughter, who "had to come back for one more hug", jumps up in the bed, sees us hugging and comes in for a family hug.

It was so uncomfortable and weird and then daughter takes a long time so grandma comes up to make sure everything is okay, walks in and just stares at us and knows immediately what is going on.

Could have been much worse, but that's the one and only time before locks were put on doors.


"My son was about four..."

My son was about four the first time he walked in on my husband and I. He ran out of the room screaming, "I SAW BUTTS MOVING IN THE DARK!"


"We have..."

We have one of those baby monitors which connect to the phone. Naturally, when we moved our son's crib from our room to his, we started sleeping with the monitor connected all through the night. Also our bedroom became somewhat more active with him gone. One night my wife wanted to make things a bit more special, so she put on some lingerie, had some music playing and danced for me. I was half undressed with her on my lap when suddenly the loud speakers crank and make a sound like starting a Harley. As it turned the phone and with it the baby monitor were plugged into the soundsystem and our son had passed wind lout enough for monitor to pick it up and then it got amplified by the system. So naturally, I had a laughing fit and my poor wife wasn't best pleased about her farting son and his infantile father.


"I was 3..."

I was 3. Too short to get a cup from the elevated cupboards and get a drink of water. My sister wouldn't do it for me. So I disobeyed the "stay downstairs" directive, and have an image burned in my head of my parents having sex. It's been 30 years, and it's still in my brain.


"Moved home..."


Moved home to care for my mother who had a stroke and needed assistance. While there, I hooked up with a girl I'd had a crush on during high school. She was a single mother with a 3 year old daughter and lived in a mobile home with thin walls. Her kid walked in while we were banging. Girl was upset thinking I was hurting her mom. Mom took her back to bed. It was awhile before she came back, my hard on was long gone. Resumed sex, girl walks in again. Mom takes her back to bed and again takes a long time to settle her in. At that point, I needed to be home to check on my own mother so I got dressed and left. We had uninterrupted sex the next week, but the whole situation was kind of depressing.


"When I was 17..."

My whole family went up to our cottage. This included grandma and great-grandma. There was a couple in the cottage next to us who brought their niece with them. She was really cute. We ended up hitting it off, mostly because I had a car and a motorcycle (dirt bike) and was like the only person on the lake near her age. After a few days of flirting and what not, we ended up hooking up. We made out a bit on the boat, and decided to take it into the bedroom. This was at like, 4:30 in the afternoon. As we're getting frisky with one another, both buck naked, my great-grandma walks into the room, assuming I had gone in to take a nap, to let me know dinner was almost ready. Grandma saw what was going on and giggled. She then proceeded to tell us not to worry, she wouldn't tell anybody, and that she used to do the same thing all the time when she was younger. She died having never told anybody.


"Told them I'd be right out."

6 and 4 year old at the time walked in while we were having sex. Door to our bedroom was locked. However the bathroom has two doors one from the hallway one to our room and the door to our room has to be pulled pretty hard for the latch to click. Anyways 8 months pregnant with their sister and I was on top we thank God keep the blankets over us because for some reason we enjoy sweating like it's a workout. Just leaned forward immediately and asked what they needed. Juice was the answer. Told them I'd be right out. They shut the door. I hopped off, pulled down and up my nighty and went to get them juice. Husband was still ready to go when I got back. It happens. They're learning how to knock and that door was fixed pretty shortly after.


"I was staying..."

I was staying at my best friend's house when we were teenagers. His parents had a "rule" that he had to check in with them before bed. This would ostensibly stop us from underage drinking and smoking marijuana cigarettes.

Anyways, we come home all messed up and he goes to do his check in. He comes back white as a ghost and after a few minutes explains that when he opened their door he just saw his dad sexing his mom at warp factor 9.

The next morning they came downstairs while we're eating and decide to discuss it with him right in front of me. "When adults love each other they show it with physical affection" blah blah blah. I was so uncomfortable I just picked a spot on the wall to stare at and eat my Froot Loops.


"Wife and I..."

Wife and I decided to sneak off while the kids were downstairs. Middle of the day. I did the normal go down and get her off thing, then it was my turn... As I was about to mount up, my 4 year old started banging on the locked bedroom door. We both started laughing really hard. I couldn't get it up, she told me to just do it still. I told her it wasn't possible. Kid still banging on door, "MOMMY AND DADDY! WHY WON'T YOU LET ME IN! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!"

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.


"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo


"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade

Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
